Rev. Dr. Thomas Shepherd
The Book of Bio-Spiritual Yum Yum Goodness!
Thursday, September 18, 2014
Dr. Tom’s special guest this week is author, comedian, wildly creative thinker Dave Hickman, whose newly released work is called The Book of Bio-Spiritual Yum Yum Goodness! Thoughts, Theories and Humor From a Hypersensitive, Fanboy Comedian. Hickman’s book has been described as “a mix of New Age, self-help, and comedy,” which “explores the thoughts and experiences of a man with emotional hypersensitivity, synesthesia, and a vivid imagination” (Amazon review). Hickman bounces through topics like discovering the full capabilities of human senses; exploring techniques to calm down, reduce stress on the body, and learn questions to ask ourselves. (Fluffy unicorns and UFO theories are a bonus in the book.) This is NOT like Charles Fillmore’s prudent logic of spirituality, but closer to an explosion in a toy factory of new ideas. Dr. Tom and Dave Hickman ramble and amble through streams of consciousness, pausing only to laugh and catch our breath. Bring your running shoes.
